Hi everybody. I've only posted on this forum a couple times but I just want to thank everybody for their support. My father passed away from EC on October 21st and he will be missed. I plan on starting a foundation under his name to support families and patients who are experiencing this horrible beast of a disease. I'm making a VOW right now to make sure that people are aware of this cancer.
I recently went to a health fair in one of our major hospitals here in Anchorage, AK and EC was not even mentioned except for every single type of cancer. They say its a "Rare" cancer but it doenst mean that people should not be aware of it. It should get as much attention as other forms of common cancer. I also plan on making a documentary of this cancer to make the public more aware and to give hope to patients who already have it.
My father was the type of man who ALWAYS ALWAYS made sure that people were taken care of before himself, even if you were a total stranger. He was a very generous man. And this is my way of giving hope. I will keep everybody posted this forum. Thank you all again. My heart goes out to all families and paitients on this forum battling EC. God Bless.
